Thread: New to Forums, I have a question about selling a handgun.

  1. Question New to Forums, I have a question about selling a handgun.

    I want to sell one of my handguns, I have never sold one and was wondering how I can do it legally so I don't get a knock on my door in the future by the LAW.

    Should I write up a bill of sales and get a photocopy of the buyers drivers license and signature?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum. It is indeed a great site.

    As best I can tell from reading the section pertaining to transfering firearms in MN (Section 624.7131 beginning on page 6, left column, near the bottom) It appears to me that in MN you are able to obtain a "transferee permit" which allows you to purchase handguns or certain assault weapons without filing any paperwork. Additionally, a CCW permit is also a valid substitute for the transferee permit.

    If it is a private sale, it looks like all you must do is verify the ID and the permit of the purchaser. I would suggest making a photo copy of both.

    I'm not a lawyer, so of course take my advice at your own risk.
